Hi guys, I'm making an RPG with multiple level/locations. Each level looks completely different, and I wondered should I use a separate layout for each?
It sounds sensible to use a separate layout of course, but what about HUD items like score, current weapon etc. If I had a different layout for each I'd need a copy of these on each, which is fine until I come to change the position of them (it might happen!). And then I'd have to update ALL my layouts, and by then there might be many. I'm planning a game with 20+ layouts.
How best is it to approach this?
